The Batchelor Pad

The Batchelor News Radio Show focuses on issues ranging from sports and politics to race, society, and religion. During each hour of the two-hour timeslot, up to four guests — who may include professional athletes, politicians, White House correspondents, and religious leaders — address a different topic. “We want to enlighten, educate, and empower people. We want people to know what’s going on in everyday life,” says L.A. Batchelor. “I have my own personal beliefs — and sometimes I’ll put them out there. But I’m about getting the information out and making people ponder and think.” The Batchelor Pad Show also airs at 900/1250 ESPN radio in New Hampshire and WHBO in Tampa, Florida.

Seeking Justice

The “Seeking Justice” LIVE Radio Talk Show with Mary Hope, Professor of Peace & Conflict Studies examines current issues of conflict from multiple perspectives. The objective of the show is to transcend “right” and “wrong” opinions to more deeply understand the underlying reasons (both sides have) that drive their perspectives.

The goal is to educate the listening public with respectful ways to talk about issues that two sides disagree on.   The conversation is structured to examine the specific issues that individuals disagree on respectfully.

The hope is that this show will reveal to listeners that people can disagree politically, but still care about each other and respect the underlying reasons for different perspectives. When each side thoroughly open its mind to the other perspective without negative judgment or the need to be “right” and the other side “wrong” –  moments of transformation and later transcendence can happen.
